When I bought my car ('75 Carrera) it had a full cage tight to sun roof.
The sunroof cars have a metal sub structure for the sun roof mechanism. You loose about 1 1/2-2" of headroom with the sunroof. We cut most of the roof out, coming in 2" from the front and rear windows and rain gutters. The roof section we cut out weighed 39 lbs. We installed a carbon fibre roof weighing 5 lbs.
I tied the roll bar into the A & B pillars and sections or the remaining roof where the roll bar was close.
